the right, harry reid says that's absolutely what's going on with the chuck hagel situation. he says i guess to be able to run for the senate, you are need to have a resumÉ that says i helped filibuster one of the president's nominees. maybe that helps keep a tea party guy or woman from running against you. do you really think that it will help somebody when they go back to their district for an election in 2014 that they're able to say i stood up to the president on chuck hagel? >> i think that, look, most americans i think are not terribly tuned into the nomination process of chuck hagel, probably doesnn't have strong feelings about him. say you're lindsay graham and you have a town meeting, a lot of people are thinking is graham really with us? is he fighting the president to the wall the way we want him to? lindsay graham does have to be very concerned about getting primaried. everyone's talking about chuck hagel. i think back in their district the intensity, the people who demonstrate real interest, intensity and knowledge about the situation, are they the conservative base? for the mo

during the hearings of hillary clinton and even chuck hagel. >> heather: so not iminformed responses. i'll toss this question to you. they did indict the department of state, this is a quote, with shocking irresponsibility to protect american personnel at benghazi. the fact is the intelligence community and the department of state, they were sharing reports mostly provided by the c.i.a. for months that were outlining the growing threat in benghazi and, indeed, it was focused on western influence particularly the u.s. those requests early on for additional security prior to the attack went unanswered. you are satisfied with that response from panetta? >> yeah, i think what is being lost is the fact there has been an accountability review of all of this. they have laid out a number of recommendations. thef been agreed to by hillary clinton, by the president, by a number of people. we're not really at this point getting a lot new information. what is being lost in the context lindsay graham's request to have another hearing with will have papa. it's supposed -- leon panetta. there is a lot
